FINANCIAL AID

YCares Financial Assistance: At the Y, we know that every child can benefit from camp. We also know that not all children have what they need to thrive. That’s why together, with the generous support of our donors, we provide camp scholarships for families who need us most. If your family needs assistance, let us help. At the Y, no one has been turned away because of an inability to pay.

BEHIND THE NAME

Weetamoe was a Pocasset Wampanoag Native American Chief. She was the sunksqua, or female sachem, of the Pocasset tribe, which occupied contemporary Tiverton, Rhode Island in 1620. Because her father had no sons, she became sunksqua, and was defended by an army of more than 300 men that she commanded. Being a woman did not diminish her authority, despite many colonists’ lack of understanding of her position.

Weetamoe joined “with King Philip in fighting the colonists” in 1675, in King Philip’s War, also known as “Metacomet’s Rebellion.” King Philip’s War is named for the uprising of Metacomet, Weetamoe’s brother-in-law and the younger brother of Wamsutta, who was also known by the English name Philip. Early on in the war, Weetamoe gave support to Metacomet by aiding his forces with the strength of her soldiers.

WHERE DO THE FUNDS FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE COME FROM?

This program is funded through our Annual Campaign and through the United Way.

We are committed to this simple policy: No one will be turned away due to their inability to pay for Y programs, camps, or memberships. Please complete the YCares application and return it to your local YMCA Southcoast branch in Dartmouth, Fall River, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Swansea, or Wareham.

WHAT IS NATIONWIDE MEMBERSHIP?

Nationwide Membership enables you to visit any participating Y in the United States through membership at your “home” YMCA (your home location is the facility that enrolled you as a member and that collects your membership dues). We offer this because we want to help you reach your health and wellness goals wherever you live, work or travel. This is an essential part of our cause of strengthening communities.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
  • Valid for active, full facility YMCA members
  • Nationwide member visitors must use their home Y at least 50% of the time
  • Program-only participants and special memberships are not eligible for Nationwide Membership
